This Cantelope Horchata is a remix of Mexican Horchata. This non-alcoholic refreshment warms in flavors with Chinese 5 Spice, lightens with a touch of honey and brightens with fresh mint.
Glassware: Collins or Rocks glass
In a blender, grind the seeds with Chinese five spice, honey, and 2 cups of water until as smooth as possible.
Pour mixture through a strainer into a pitcher. Stir well and add more honey to taste if desired.
Garnish with a sprig of mint or dried or freeze-dried melon. Serve chilled over ice.
Note: The horchata may thicken up if held in the refrigerator overnight. Adjust thickness by blending in more water.
